The Backup and the Baby by Mary Smith is an empowering story of growth and coming into ones own. This is the 7th installment of the series and can be read as a standalone but in my honest opinion I do think you should read book 6 as it will give a little more back story about Nova and Teo.

It's ok

I like the premise of the story, however, the h felt like a bit of a pushover. I mean the H treats her pretty badly and she STILL sticks up for him. Then she decides she's done which of course it's when he decides he's not, so she gives in super fast.

Also, this could have used maybe one more once over by an editor or a good Beta reader to catch the typos.

I love this series! I love getting to hear each player's love story. Mary has created a great bunch of hockey players and love interests. Teo and Nova's story was a bit different from most romances because they were separate for most of the book. I really liked seeing them work through their problems and finding their way back to each other. I can't wait to continue the series with Alden's story!
